During WonderCon today a new trailer for Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter dropped and it has now made its way online. The Tim Burton-produced period action film follows the story of our late president with some deadly creatures in the mix.

As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved.
